April Showers – Rainy Day Coats

You can stare out the window all you like hoping for those dark clouds to pass but with the children back at school, the dog needing walking and your daily commute to work not waiting for the rain to pass then now’s the time to spruce up your rainy day wardrobe and invest in the perfect coat to see you through.  Read on for my pick of some of the best and top ten tips to flatter your style. 

Top Ten Tips

1. Large busted – choose single breasted
2. Small busted – go for pockets/detail at the bust line
3. Narrow/sloping shoulders – wider lapels and epaulets will help to broaden your shoulders
4.Wide shoulders – opt for long narrow lapels
5. Prominent tummy – avoid belted
6. Short body – long jackets/coats worn in a stronger colour give the illusion of a longer body
7.Wide shoulders/narrow hips – choose simple classic designs and avoid very heavy shoulder padding
8. Full upper body/full at waistline – unstructured longer straight styles
9. Small waisted – opt for fitted waists and belted styles to flatter
10. Wide hips – choose softly tailored styles to fall over your fabulous curves
